Set Sail Yacht Charters, SetSailAway.com, sails
to Cuba. We were there two months ago. I don't believe we can accommodate your schedule in December. If you just need to get to Cuba and on a schedule, I too recommend flying. In addition to the flights from Miami
, there are regular flights from Cancun
The problem with flying is that you will also need a hotel
. Hotels are available in Havana and a few other areas, but the rooms are not cheap
compared to what you receive for your money
. For that matter, nothing in Cuba is cheap
. You can find restaurants that are not expensive, but you need to speak Spanish and know your way around. The hotel
restaurants are expensive. There is very little food
available for purchase
in a store. This being said, thousands of Canadians manage to visit Cuba via airlines.
I personally believe visiting Cuba by boat is currently the best method, but I'm biased. I travel everywhere on a boat. When I fly, I'm usually flying to get on another boat.
If you are still interested in a yacht sailing to Cuba, Set Sail provides a 52 foot ketch
with three private staterooms. The crew are all USCG licensed captains and they speak English
The cost is about $850/ day plus any deadhead transient fees
. These charters are mostly all inclusive, but you can customize what's included to your interests. You can contact Set Sail via phone
by visiting the website at SetSailAway.com
